QUESTIONS-

What level are you? 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, 4.5, or 5.5+

How hard do you hit the ball?

Do you hit with spin, slice or topspin?

Are you a baseliner or are you all court/serve volley?

Are you playing on a hard court or clay?

Do you play doubles or singles?

WELL Here's what I think! If I HAD to choose between those two i would pick the Aero Pro Drive.

AeroPro Control is 12oz
AeroPro Drive is 11.3oz

I think these are both too heavy for your game but that's entirely up to you!
Also these are both 'head light' (the handle is heavier than the head) which in my opinion is better suited to the upper levels of the game, a strong player who takes great big powerful swings. A bigger & heavier head would provide more 'pop' on your strokes, especially if you are not very powerful/do not take big swings.

If you want a Babolat, why don't you look at the Babolat Soft Drive.

I have bought plenty of racquets that my favorite pros used and have regretted it in the end because they did not suit my game!! However, I probably would not have listened to anyone's advice so It's totally up to you!

Happy Hitting

The Aero Pro Drive, but I agree that it might be a bit heavy

I'm using the Aero Pro Drive right now... it's AMAZING. You can generate such power, maybe too much power. You can always work on it by adding weight wherever you want. I strongly recomend u to buy it, it's worth it.

I like the Drive more. I think it has more "umph!"; more pop when you drive the ball. It's also really friendly on the topspin. Great on the serve and volleys.

Just my opinion though.

I'd actual suggest giving the PURE STORM TEAM a test run (this racquet is actually the PURE POWER XYLON 360 with a fresh paint job)....notably the oversize 103....

It is a lighter 9.9 ounces unstrung and has nice dampened feel and good access to power, but not too overwhelming. It responds to both topsin and slice exceptionally well. Great feel on all serves and lovely around the net.

Stick with Drive. It suits a wider variety of players and is probably easier to play with for most people. Anybody know what the difference between an Aero and a non-Aero is? (No gorgeous bubbly chocolate jokes please.)
